Napoleon Hill says “In working with your PMA (positive mental attitude), you will learn to control your mind.

As you develop your power of enthusiasm, you also develop your positive mental attitude. Enthusiasm acts on our subconscious mind the same way as positive mental attitude.

    2. Write out a clear statement of that purpose and your plan for attaining it. Include a statement of what you intend to give in return for its realization.
    3. Back your purpose with a burning desire. Fan that desire; coax it; let it become the dominating thought in your mind (enthusiasm helps fan your desire).
    4. Set to work immediately in carrying out your plan.
    5. Follow your plan accurately and persistently.
    6. If you are overtaken by defeat, study your plan carefully, and change it if necessary. Do not change it simply because you have met defeat.
    7. Ally yourself with others whose aid you need. (Masterminding is the secret Key to Law of Success # 2).
    8. Keep away from joy-killers and naysayers. Stick with the optimists.
